to the united nations, susan rice came under fire from republican senators. senators john mccain and lindsey graham, back at it, trying to trump up the ambassador's role in the benghazi consulate attacks. they took their shots at ambassador rice this morning and the president hit back. >> senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. and i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador, who had nothing to do with benghazi, and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received, and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. >> that's loyalty to a staff member. if looks could kill, the president's look would be a cruise missile. it was the most sustained anger, i think it will be the most sustained anger that we have seen and will see coming from this president in a display in a television news conference. now, there is no evidence the ambassador did anything wrong, regarding the benghazi attacks. president obama is not about to let a member of his administration get dragged th
again. >> hey, joe. >> you know, susan rice, our u.n. ambassador, has been taking a lot of heat. john mccain, lindsey graham going after her for repeating what the president says was the intel that was available at the time. you're on the committee. can you tell us, was susan rice, from what you know, just repeating what was being told to everybody in washington at the time on what had happened in benghazi? >> well, here's what i think, joe. i think without question, i mean, you know, you've got guys storming a consulate with ak-47s, with rpgs and firing mortars. they knew immediately this was a terrorist attack. there wasn't any question about that. and why the white house didn't come out and say that immediately, i don't know. they tried to soften it somewhat with regard to it was a spontaneous action that stemmed from a protest. there was a question about whether protesters were there. and five days later, susan rice goes on tv and says that not only was it a protest, but it apparently stemmed from this trailer or this movie that had been shown. and very honestly by that point in time
caused by a hateful video, when -- i was on "face the nation" the sunday that susan rice was out there and immediately after susan rice gave that message, the hateful video they had the president of the libyan national assembly come on right after that and said no, this is an al-qaeda operation. an al-qaeda operation. he said it unequivocally. let for days and weeks afterwards they kept up this facade. i guess they think they are running out the clock. just yesterday the state department had a news conference and their spokesperson refused to answer a single question about benghazi. somehow that? >> judge jeanine: and you know what, senator, i think when you can say you are investigating and it is all about beat the clock. >> absolutely. >> judge jeanine: the election is three days away and the biggest concern i think of some especially the military is will we ever get to the bottom of this. will we ever know or get the administration to admit what they knew. >> the only way we are going to know is a bipartisan committee. a select committee such as we had with iran contra and wat
the fact with susan rice going on the sunday show. >> misinformation. >> that also deserves severe inspection because i believe there are really valid questions about whether or not the president -- >> so in two years -- here's the deal. >> they spun an an act of terrom into an act of vandalism. >> they should have held a press conference long before this and clarified those issues, yes? yes? >> yes and. >> thank you. as a leader of the country he should have held a press conference and clarified what happened. >> letter. now here's the press conference. by now we give you your press conference. what was the cia doing in benghazi, mr. president? >> i can't answer that because of senate security. >> are you ducking it? >> i'm not dubbing it. >> then why don't tell you why they are there. >> come on. >> but that's what you get from a press conference. >> bull. he just gets on and says this is what we know and this is what we see. that's all. he hasn't done it. he's running away from it because it would hurt him on the election. you know it. >> i just think that we have lost some good
to the job. susan rice is another person who has been mentioned who has less kind of gravitas on capitol hill, compared to john kerry. my guess is president obama will try to find someone relatively comparable who can shine in the media, who can do well with members of capitol hill as they deal with the challenges abroad. >> the democrats kept control of the senate, wolf. it is slightly easier when he's talking about confirmees. but the benghazi dustup put a tarnish on susan rice. does that have a bomb ofpotenti more bruising confirmation fight? >> the television appearance, five sunday talk shows in which she said what she said and given how angry the republicans are on this whole benghazi thing, the accusations they're making and they're going after her directly, i don't know if the president wants to start off a second term with a bruising confirmation battle for susan rice. so from her perspective, i think it has hurt her. john kerry, he did a pretty good job helping in the debates. i think he's got a good shot at it. we'll see if anybody else emerges as a candidate. >> republican senator
't think we can defend the consulate. of course they know they sent susan rice out to say that this was a spontaneous demonstration triggered by a hateful video. the president's repeated it several times. when we knew it was not true. i was on "face the nation" that sunday and the president of the libyan national assembly came on right away and said this is an al qaeda attack. there was no demonstration. what they are trying to sell flies in the face of the facts. what they were trying to sell is al qaeda's on the run because we got bin laden. al qaeda is coming back everywhere. you know that, piers. they have taken over parts of mali. they are all through libya. they are on a comeback in iraq. they are coming into syria in droves, by the way, while we watch 34,000 people being massacred. so of course our veterans, of course our men and women in the military don't trust this commander in chief and they have no reason to do so. >> if mitt romney wins the election, what do you think in the end will have been the key determining factor? >> i think the first debate obviously.
that this is a planned attack. that's not true. susan rice said on september 16 that this was spontaneous. that was not true. and they knew it was not true at the time. so those are the things that we know now were untrue. >> gretchen: there is so much to talk about. unfortunately, i've got to wrap it because we have another discussion with the panel just around the corner. we're four days now as we've been talking about, from electing a president. ohio still anyone's game. we're going to talk about that. then, think media bias doesn't exist? could the proof be in the numbers? i want to find out what those are and we're going to give them to you coming up jenna shared her recipe with sharon, who emailed it to emily, who sent it to cindy, who wondered why her soup wasn't quite the same. the recipe's not the recipe... ohhh. [ female announcer ] ...without swanson. the broth cooks trust most when making soup. mmmm! [ female announcer ] the secret is swanson. >> eric: now your news by the numbers. first, at least 32. that's how many times president obama has described al-qaeda as being decima
hillary clinton wants to leave. the question is whether it is john kerry or susan rice, secretary of state. i think likely given the problems over the benghazi attack, i would say john kerry. leon panetta would like to stay on i am told. timothy geithner definitely is leaving. in terms of who takes the position, there are a lot of possibilities. i think barack obama is interested in bringing someone into the inner circle with a business background. he definitely need that. irskin bowels might come in. he was the chief of staff under bill clinton. he and alan simpson free of the debt and deficit commission. this is the document president obama famous we thank him for and put it on the shelf and did not do much with it. host: american universities did it come isabelle rhoda joins us now. caller: mayor bloomberg endorsed president obama. many liberals would say he has not played a strong enough role. do you believe president obama will be a stronger leader in environmental policy? guest: this is definitely something that should have mentioned before, climate change. this is something he has s
